Hi, I was just wondering if you could answer a question for me. I am a 45y/o female and have noticed a pink muscular thing blocking the opening of my vagina. It can be moved upward toward my front. Occasionally I feel like somethiing is coming out and it can be quite irritating. It is not painful and I feel like it has been there for some time and I am just now starting to notice it because I can feel it sometimes. I am scheduled for a gyn appointment in February so I was wondering what this could be and if waiting 2 months would be OK. The only other symptoms I have is occasional constipation and mild incontinence when I sneeze. Thanks for your help!
From what you are describing I suspect this mass represent you bladder. This is called a cystocele and is easily diagnosed by examination. Fallen bladder, cystoceles are not a medical emergency and may be addressed if and when the patient desires.
